The Big News:
We’re going to be unemployed and homeless!
The mister and I put our notices in at work and our lease is up at the end of June.
Well, because we’re going to Europe for three months of course!
It’s a late honeymoon. Not your typical honeymoon though, because we’ll be working on farms and couchsurfing.
By volunteering on farms and couchsurfing we’ll be able to cheaply extend our trip, experience new things we normally wouldn’t and meet all different kinds of people.
We’ve been a little restless for a few years now (maybe it’s the 135 degree summers) and we’ve been craving change and adventure.
We leave Arizona on July 6th for New York & Boston and then land in Amsterdam on July 15th.
We’ll keep you posted here (www.doomedforhappiness.com) about where we are, what we’re eating (yes, expect plenty of food photos), the friends we make and the things we learn.
I’ve never been more excited/scared/nervous/happy for anything in my life.
Welp, see ya later
How to Plan a Wedding
Put your dreams on hold.
You want to go backpacking in Europe or start your own business?
Ha! With what money?
All of your money will now be going towards bacon wrapped dates, a 32 tier cake and ice cubes with the bride & groom’s face in them.
Change your personality.
You hate crowds and being the center of attention?
Dress up like a princess and surround yourself with 200 guests.
Ignore your instincts.
You initially wanted to have a private ceremony with immediate friends & family?
Declare your love theatrically with vows you found on Pinterest in front of hundreds of guests.
Become obsessed with stuff.
You don’t really care about centerpieces and the font on place cards?
You will now spend 864 hours researching monogrammed mason jars, wedding pinatas and mustache props for a photo booth.
Follow outdated/sexist and silly/new traditions.
You want to keep it simple and make your own traditions?
Shut your mouth.
Make sure your father gives you away like the property that you are and don’t forget to have a wedding party (with an equal number of groomsmen to bridesmaids OR ELSE.)
Yoshi yearns to yawn.
